Just out of curiosity, are there any other pre-pods out there doing summer undergraduate research? I know several pre-pods in my class are doing summer research internships in Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine: both are doing different research partnerships, one of my closest friend is doing a collaborative researc with an OU-COM medical student in regards to Alzheimer's disease: they will be studying protein manipulation that prevents the deteriotion of neural tissues (atrophy) and observe if that protein synthesis can prevent damage in the tempoparietal and frontal cortex and eventual prelation of the neurofibrillary tangles. My other friend is doing a summer internship in OU-COM but will be researching the on the topic of peroxidases levels and specific culturation between Arabidopsis and Brassicarapa via electrophoresis techniques. I personally will be doing a 4 week summer internship-research in Drexel University concerning host immune response to –pathogen interactions and symbioses (some pathogens that we'll be looking into: staphylococcus aureus, cryptosporidium, Histoplasma capsulatum, and some Herpes simplex standards). So for those doing summer research, where are you researching at? I'd like to know more about your research topics and perhaps we all can share findings and discussion topics in here. Hope to interact with you this summer here.
